Oprah Winfrey invited members of late Whitney Houston's family; including her daughter, Bobbi Kristina; her brother, Gary Houston; and her sister-in-law and manager, Patricia Houston on her show. The special interview on "Oprah's Next Chapter” will be televised on the Oprah Winfrey Network Sunday night.

In the interview, Patricia Houston spoke of her fears for legendary singer Whitney Houston before the latter died last month at the age of 48. According to Patricia, the late singer was chasing a dream and “looking for love in all the wrong places” and that is what ultimately took her life.
“I wish we had the autopsy and the toxicology report because odds are, she’s off the mark,” declared Patricia, Whitney’s confidante.
According to Patricia Houston, Whitney Houston’s success started downhill after falling prey to drug abuse. When asked if she felt that “drugs would end up taking” her famous sister-in-law’s life, she responded, “The handwriting was kind of on the wall. I would be kidding myself to say otherwise.”
However, Patricia Houston also added that Whitney Houston was making changes in her life. “If things hadn’t changed,” she replied. “But things had, were, changing. Things were really changing with her. Very much so. It wasn’t about substance abuse or anything like that….I was afraid for other things, lifestyle, more so.”
